Lamb in Krakow

No, not the story of an innocent in Krakow but lamb of the animal kind...

This is a public service announcement for anyone living in Krakow who wants to get hold of some fresh lamb: the butcher at the Nowy Kleparz market has just started to sell this season's lamb.

He says he gets it slaughtered and prepared for him every couple of weeks and they hang it at the abattoir for a couple of days. They're pretty small at the moment (I bought half a lamb and the leg is only 1.2kg) but I guess they'll get bigger as the season progresses. I forgot to ask if he will sell just certain cuts (he cut up the half for me though), but I paid 25PLN/kg for the half lamb. It's all set for Sunday lunch tomorrow...

Cheers, that's good to know. I do like a bit of lamb from time to time.

Just to extend this thread a bit. St Andrew's Day is fast approaching and I want to make a haggis. Does anyone know of a butcher where I can get lung, heart and liver of lamb/mutton? Or just any butchers who deal in sheep in Kraków? I am sure if they sell any cuts of sheep I can source it from them.

Also can someone help out with a bit of vocab, what is lungs, heart and liver in Polish. Is there a word for the lot (in Scotland we say the pluck) or is it individual?

The guy in the Nowy Kleparz market currently has mutton and should be able to get you lamb offal if you ask him ahead of time.

Lungs = płuca
Heart = serce
Liver = wątroba

I've no idea if there's a collective term for it though.

Which guy is it in Nowy Kleparz? I went round the butchers there once and no-one had any lamb.

Delicious!

I don't know if you have any branches of the £uków chain of butchers' shops in Kraków, but they take orders for offal.

Also Kuchnie Świata in Warsaw often have haggis, albeit tinned.

Thanks for that, my sharp shooting friend.

I will have a look about and see if I can find it :)

I am sure if that is the case then they will have some in the Kraków branch too. I fancy making it as it will be a good bit of fun, but this is a good idea as a last resort.

Ask the guy who did the Dragon! Surely he kept the sheep`s entrails after stuffing it with tar and sulphur.

The guy who has the shop on the NE corner on the northernmost alley, just by the steps that take you out to the junction of Dluga and Al. 29 Listopada. There's been a sign posted in the window for the last couple of days saying "Baranina 13zl/kg".

Cheers, I'll take a wander round during the week when I get me some cash for my birthday...Birthday roast lamb methinks! Then sort out some offal for haggis :)
